Default Smiley Bowl and glass screen

Anyone use these? I was wondering how well it works. Also, what benefit does the glass screen provide aside from not having to crumple foil around the bowl?

i have a smiley bowl and love it. the glass heats evenly and provides an even cook for the shisha. also the smiley bowl doesnt require as much heat as a regular bowl would.

The basic idea is that it has more even heat distribution and that it's cool to see smoke going through the bowl. I've used them before and they work just fine but a medium funnel sells for a third of the price and works much better and holds a lot more shisha.

I have and use a glass smiley bowl, but I've stopped using the glass screen. It does help w/ the heat and such, but the screen always burnt my shisha considerably faster than I like (plus I don't feel like dripping water into the bowl).

They are nice, but a Phunnel will get more use (for most people - not me, but I'm strange anyways).

Also, I've noticed that Glass bowls work great for drier shisha, as they tend to drip ALOT. And if you don't clean it before, it can be a b#tch to scrub out that sticky melted juice :P

I've got one, never gotten great smoke out of it. The few times you do get some good clouds brewing, you've likely burnt the shisha. I figure I need more practice on it lol, still I'll stick with my ceramic.

I ffeel I have to use too much heat and I go through the shisha too quick. I also had problems when it did work ok that shisha burnt to the bottom of the screen, also seems harder to clean and I always feel I'm gonna break it.
